Course contents:

In the course TiN260: Digital Manufacturing and Design Technology "Applied Methods and Processes so students will be informed of the change taking place, worldwide, in terms of how products are designed and manufactured. This transformation takes place through digital production and design (DM & D) - a transition from paper-based processes to digital processes in industry. By the end of this course, you will understand what DMD is and how it affects careers, procedures and processes in companies both large and small. Students will be involved in creating a roadmap to achieve their own personal goals related to digital production and design, which will help them to see opportunities in the current labor market. In this course, students also students have the opportunity to use the knowledge acquired in previous subjects in the implementation of an assigned project. The implementation of the project provides a concrete contribution to the students' work experience and will demonstrate their knowledge of the industry 4. where students will have the opportunity to develop sustainable solutions used for solving the primary needs such as an water technology, intelligent transport systems (ITS), sustainable food and energy production.

The aim of this subject is simple documentation of development work done in the course  in the form of a design report or a feasability study. 

Learning outcome:
  • Use of Digital production and design technology 
  • Advance use of the CAD tool ( "Autodesk Fusion 360")
  • Applied use of such rapid prototyping, programming, IoT etc in projects
  • practical cooperation
  • Project completion 
  • Increased communication ability and documentation of projects.  
  • Preliminary development of a "Digital Twin" system
Learning activities:
Project work, supervised self-study.
